In the warm and wonderful tradition of emerging reader series about friendship like Frog and Toad and Elephant and Piggie, comes Deborah Marcero's Haylee and Comet, a book about a secret wish, a girl named Haylee, and a cosmic friendship.
Haylee and Comet share one simple wish: a friend. And as with all great best-friendships, the universe brings them together in the right place at the right time.
With each adventure, Haylee and Comet learn about what it takes to grow a strong and long-lasting friendship: accepting their differences, discovering the things they share, communicating with honesty, and being open to forgiveness. And just maybe, there'll be some surprises along the way.
